FOCS / air-conditioning


Combining window with the pipes of passive cooling system which reduces the average temperature surrounding the window. This concept makes the air conditioning just like an interior decoration which is not only beautiful but also functional, controlling the interior temperature to make the users feel
comfortable. The system pumps out groundwater or recycles the rainwater
collected and stored in the basement reservoir which is usually available in the present buildings. The cool water circulates in the pipes which are installed beforehand in each floor. By connecting this product with the water pipes, the water is renewed all the time, therefore the lower temperature water cools down the interior space.
